When asked on Tuesday while we chatted who he thought would get the final two bullpen spots, Gelbs said Montero and Edgin. Turns out he called it right. Both Montero and Edgin made the roster.

He went on to say how the Mets front office isn’t too keen on giving up assets for nothing, alluding to Edgin. Gelbs does believe however that Edgin won’t be around for too long; the Mets will have a conversation about him once Jeurys Familia is back from his 15 game suspension.

Now, of course you knew we had to chat about the rotation. What did he think the starting rotation order would be?

Well, if Steven Matz were healthy, Gelbs thought it would be Syndergaard, deGrom, Harvey, Matz, Gsellman.

But, as Matz isn’t healthy and is not on the Opening Day roster, we know that the rotation is in fact Syndergaard, deGrom, Harvey, Wheeler, and Gsellman.
